It is at the edge of each new beginning
that miracles await. There are certain milestones or
benchmarks in life that signify a new beginning. Death.
Rebirth. Birthdays. Graduation. Marriage. Even divorce
can sometimes be a new beginning. And of course, every
twelve months there is the beginning of each New Year.
These are opportunities for a paradigm shift in awareness. This shift in awareness,
although available at any moment in time, seems to have added energy during these
special times. Perhaps it is because we give ourselves permission to do it better,
start over or begin again. Albert Einstein once said, “There are two ways
to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though
everything is a miracle.” What is the difference? Could it be as simple
as a change in perspective?
I have a friend who died this month. An unfortunate mistake made by the hospital
caused her to have a seizure that damaged her brain to the extent that there
was no hope for recovery. Two weeks prior, she was a vibrant woman warrior. Today
she is gone.
My doctor told me a story last week about a man who was allergic to bee stings.
He walked out in the back yard, without telling his wife, and was stung. As he
lay on the ground with his throat closing, knowing he was about to die, he let
go. In that moment of sweet relief, the last thought he remembered was, “Why
did I believe everything had to be so hard?” Moments later, the paramedics
arrived and revived him, but his experience changed his life. What life changing
belief are you willing to transform…. now in this new beginning called
These are drastic examples, and you don’t need a drastic life-changing
event in order to drastically change your life. Most people waste a lot of time
and energy making resolutions they never keep. Just make one! One life changing
decision that you can keep is all you need. One simple change in perspective
and you can improve the quality of your life. Eat better. Love deeper. Tell more
of your truth. Be authentic. Stay in gratitude. Wake up. Create meaningful relationships.
Take a real risk and love yourself. One simple decision can change your entire
We are often held hostage by the status quo, the familiar and the known. Even
when they are not working, at least we know how to deal with it. Right? But have
you considered the cost of staying in the status quo? How many of our dreams
do we have to kill to stay there? How much of our passion is denied in order
to survive there? What is life not well lived worth? What is the point of coming
here in the first place if you are not going to get the lessons, embrace the
opportunities and create what you desire? This is your opportune moment. How
many more moments, hours, days, and years do we each have? More importantly how
many more are we willing to waste in the status quo? Ten minutes of a life lived
well is worth a lifetime of mediocrity.
So here it is. This is your reminder that you are a powerful, intuitive, able
spirit in human form and you have the capacity to turn your life around. Don’t
make it hard. Just do one - one little decision that makes your life more meaningful.
The world changes one person at a time. One day at a time. And in time, every
life-changing event you create also creates a world event and a better place
for all of us. We wish you a wonderful new year free of the status quo and filled
with the excitement of the unknown…creating as you go.
